To empower African-Americans and others to achieve equality in education, employment, health, economic security and quality of life.
Bottom Line for Portland
Urban League of Portland helps displaced individuals and families that are socioeconomically challenged, with a focus on African-Americans. This is achieved through various housing, health, workforce, youth and seniors programs that have strong wraparound services, such as in-kind services, referrals, training and technical assistance.
“Urban League and its employees are absolutely wonderful! They provided me with an opportunity to really do something with my life and move toward getting a real career. Thank you, Urban League!"
